Free Falling. As If In a Dream
With the publication this month of Free Falling, As If In a Dream English speaking readers can finally read, in its entirety, one of the most ambitious literary police procedurals ever crafted.
This is a fictionalized account of the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme and the subsequent bungled and compromised investigation into it, told from inside the Swedish Police Services.
The trilogy started with Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End, continued with Another Time, Another Life and now comes to a conclusion with the publication of the translation of the new book.
This is as murky and tangled a tale as you could ever hope to encounter, marked by infighting, incompetence, malfeasance, political expediency, drunkenness, debauchery and drama. At heart though, it remains the story of an honest, incorruptible man and a resolute quest for justice.
This is a story told with consummate craft and intelligence, with a firm grip on events and personalities, and with an obvious knowledge of the machinations of bureaucracy at its most obdurate.From the copshop to the Cabinet Office the characters and motivations consistently ring true.
The assassination of Olaf Palme remains an unsolved crime. This magisterial and intensely compelling trilogy may finally put the mystery to rest.
